Join CODEPINK Congress as we educate, activate and mobilize for peace legislation!

As Israel cordons off Rafah to bomb more civilians–with over a million trapped in the southern end of Gaza, US police surround college encampments from one end of this country to another, arresting thousands of students protesting genocide, even shooting rubber bullets at UCLA protesters to send dozens to the hospital.

This time the revolution is being televised at an estimated 200 colleges in the US–others in Britain and Canada–live streaming their demands for universities to disclose, divest and demilitarize their stock holdings in Israel and war profiteers–Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, General Dynamics, Elbit Systems–to evict the war profiteers from campus.

Join us as we elevate the student protest movement under attack from thugs with metal poles and chemical sprays, from police who either fail to protect or also attack student resisters, from an Israel lobby that targets progressive lawmakers, from a President who makes it sound as though the peaceful protesters are the problem, and from a Congress that fuels genocide with another $26 billion in arms to Israel and passes legislation in the House to criminalize anti-Zionist speech.

All power to our youth on the front lines!
